Are you complaining about the sentence, or the fact that he was prosecuted in the first place?
I don't know anything like enough about this incident to even have an opinion about whether he should have been jailed or not, but there seems little doubt that it wasn't an unavoidable accident .
The had a responsibilty to ensure the safety of his crew. For one reason or another, he appears to have neglected that responsibility with tragic consequences. Is that acceptable?
 Ironically, in one of your links there is the story of Paul Bogues who was
killed in a genuine "accident" when he was hit by a freak wave . . .
